RAMP2 (Receptor Activity Modifying Protein 2) is a 20 kDa member of the RAMP family of proteins. It is expressed on cardiomyocytes, vascular smooth muscle cells and endothelium and interacts with CRLR to form a receptor complex for adrenomedullin (AM). AM induces vasodilation on AM1 receptor expressing cells. Mature mouse RAMP2 is a 145 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein that contains a 115 aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 45-159) and a nine aa cytoplasmic region. Although the ECD contains no typical structural motifs, based on human, aa 100-106 are critical for AM binding. Over aa 45-159, mouse RAMP2 shares 57% and 83% aa identity with human and rat RAMP2, respectively.
